Egyptian Lover (Stones Throw/LA)
Egyptian Lover is a legend in certain circles but a mystery to most, an artist who was in deep with most of the west coast hip hop scene before the gangsta sound came along.
Egyptian Lover was a rapper, DJ, and producer who was hugely influenced by the New York electro scene, as well as by the electro-funk of Zapp. This was flat-out party music: a little bit corny, but dynamite on the dancefloor. Although he began associating with Uncle Jamm’s Army and Radio Crew, it was as a solo artist that he made his impact. 'Egypt Egypt' (1984) was an LA anthem and his On the Nile was one of the first hip hop albums released on the Left coast. Although he never regained that prominence once gangsta rap swept all before it, his early works have become staples of electro sets across the world. Now signed and releasing with Stones Throw records and with a one of the best shows around the legend, Egyptian Lover at Cakeshop March 22nd!
